About Solar Energy
Solar power is energy from the sun that is transformed into thermal or electrical energy.
Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable resource source available, and the United States has some of the richest solar resources worldwide. Modern innovation can harness this energy for a variety of usages, consisting of producing electricity, supplying light or a comfortable interior environment, and heating water for domestic, commercial, or industrial usage.
Solar power makes it possible for property owner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, cleaning clothing, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, many residents discover that the convenience, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.

Thanks to considerable electricity costs cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy costs have actually increased by approximately three percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect against unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a business or homeowner with changing capital, going solar also assists you better projection and manage your costs.

Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, need for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.

Solar is a terrific method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal property solar panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential components of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results.

Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many property owners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.

The energy business are notorious for their varying and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward trend.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Are Solar Panels?
And Would The Work For Mobile Homes
It's a device that somehow collects energy from the sun, probably through the form of heat, and converts it to electricity to be used.
I'm not sure if you'd be able to use them for mobile homes. I mean, maybe, but they're only like 5% efficient, so to really get good energy, you'd need a ton, and with a mobile home, you probably don't have the room for a ton of panels..
How Large Of A Solar Panel Is Needed To Power A Typical Home Central Air Unit?
I Would Like To Offset My Air Conditioning Bills By Purchasing A Solar Panel Setup. I Guess The Questions That Need Answered Are These:
How Much Power Does A Central Air Unit Use? 220 Volts / 8 Amps Sound About Right?
How Large Of A Solar Array Will I Need To Power This Non-Stop During Peak Daylight/Sunlight Hours?
If your state offers "New Metering" look into installing a grid-tie system. You won't need to rely on batteries storing the energy your panels produce and if you produce more energy than you consume one month the utility company will actually credit your account for that surplus. I would recommend Global Solar Center as a good starting point (http://www.globalsolarcenter.com/). They will provide you with a free solar quote and inform you of all the incentives you'll be eligible for, your estimated annual savings, payback period etc... They'll provide you with all the info you'll need to make a smart decision. Whether or not the system powers your entire central units consumption, at the end of the day you will be saving on your monthly utility bill. Your location will be a major factor as far as feasibility goes but you should definitely start by visiting that site.
How Much Solar Panel Would Be Needed To Power A Large House?
Can Anyone Estimate How Much Solar Panel Would Be Needed For A Fairly Large House And Maybe The Price As Well
There are a lot of factors to consider, like how much sun your area gets, how much energy your home consumes, etc.
I did a rough calculation yesterday that for my home, I would need to cover about one-fifth of my roof area with solar panels to provide most of my home energy needs. I have a 1,200 square foot home which consumes about 3,000 kWh per year of energy, and I live in a pretty sunny area (north-central California).
How Expensive Are Solar Panels?
Impact Of Solar Panels On Resale Value In Pennsylvania.?
We Live In Pa And Are Considering A Couple Of Solar Options -- Either A 3-Panel Hot Water System, Or A Full Solar System. How Would These Impact Our Home'S Resale Value? It'S A 4,000 Sq Ft Home In A 7-Year Old Development.
I'd recommend talking to a real estate agent. It could raise or lower your home's value. It could raise it from an energy saving standpoint. But it could also lower it from an eyesore standpoint. The one housing complex I was in wouldn't even allow solar panels on the houses from an eyesore standpoint. So first I would start off by checking with the housing development, they may have rules that you can't even put them on your house. Then I'd check with a real estate agent. If both say ok, then I'd put them where they are as non-visible as possible. You don't want them on the road side of the house. The road view is the selling view of the house and it is the first thing that people see when they drive up to your house when it is up for sale. First impressions are BIG. In a store, it is the for 0.5 seconds that sell a person on a product. If that carries over on houses, it means that can eliminate your house before they even enter the door.
